Celebrate Gramatik's Age of Reason Release Party This At Best Buy Theater

Coinciding the release of his seventh full-length LP, New Yorker Gramatik will be kicking it big with us this Saturday at Times Square's Best Buy Theater. Hot off a scheduled booking at Brooklyn's hottest club Output that was unfortunately cancelled due to weather, this Saturday Gramatik will be joined with support from Tokimonsta, Gibbz, and Late Night Radio. As a pioneer of filesharing, the Slovenian producer made his live performance debut back in 2009 and has been a stalwart among copyright reformists ever since, embedding his personal philosophies into his artist persona:

I firmly believe that there comes a time in a human life when you reach the so-called 'age of reason' and realize that there are so many irrational beliefs, shameless contradictions and illogical restrictions inflicted upon society for various malicious reasons, things that were deliberately designed to keep us in line and prevent us from reaching our full potential as a species. Some people reach it sooner, others later, but a majority unfortunately never do. [Through my music] I'd like to guide more people to reach the age of reason sooner. Maybe. Or, hopefully at least unite the ones that feel the same way.

If you're a fan of ripe and big Trip-Hop beats you'll be in for a treat come this weekend. With a flow dominated by variety and a soothing vibe, this show is a can't miss. Grab your tickets at the link below for $34.50 including fees.

"Escape" (DSKOTEK Remix) - 3LAU, Paris & Simo ft. Bright Lights

With a gripping intro, you'll "Escape" right away with DSKOTEK's massive remix for 3LAU and Paris & Simo. Sexy synth and drum claps build up to the release with Bright Lights' only request: "Free Your Mind." And it explodes. DSKOTEK have managed to work with the oversaturated Electro House sound to create something that balances commercial viability and musical flair. Grab the free download below!

"Trombone" (Original Mix) - Flippers

The trombone doesn't get a role in its fair share of electronic tracks, and other than in the glitchy productions of Pretty Lights and the like the entire horn section is vastly underused. I'm not much for "festival anthem" Electro House but the Israeli duo known as Flippers have pulled this one off well. The melody is honey for your ears and the breaks will have any massive crowd bouncing, though I do wish they had incorporated the horn into the drop. Grab your copy from Spinnin' Records January 20th!

"Acid Phase" (Original Mix) - Stefan Dabruck

Dabruck's latest "Acid Phase" takes a wicked spin on the normal Electro House sound, ensnaring us in extended build-ups and breakdowns. The tension in this track is remarkable which makes it no wonder that DJs like Markus Schulz are throwing this recently released record into the peak time portions of their sets. Unlike many of the tracks being put out in this style today, this original is more about the edgy rifts before and after the release than the climax itself. Grab your copy today!
